Excellence in Leadership

When asked about what she would consider the best advice (consulting or otherwise) she has ever received, Cameron Forbes Over responds, “Do not shy away from challenges—embrace them!” She follows, “I had a client many years ago who instilled in me the great importance of proactively considering potential solutions once a problem is identified. Problems are an inevitable part of life, work, and projects. Your ability to think critically about the problem set, and then consider previous lessons learned, perform research, and ask thoughtful questions will go a long way in helping to more quickly find solutions. Even better, if you can approach your leadership with the problem AND ideas for how they can be solved, then you are demonstrating ownership of the situation and will likely be pulled in to help with the eventual solution—all of which creates a valuable learning opportunity.”
